Folds of Honor Collegiate Webpage

The Folds of Honor Foundation, American Dunes Golf Club, Michigan State University, and the Golf Coaches Association of America are partnering to host the Folds of Honor Collegiate, with proceeds benefiting the Folds of Honor and the GCAA Presidential Scholarship Fund.

The inaugural tournament will be held September 26-28, 2022, and feature 18 schools: Air Force, Arizona, Army, Central Michigan, Clemson, Eastern Michigan, Florida State, Grand Valley State, Illinois, Kansas, Liberty, Michigan State, Navy, NC State, Oregon State, Texas Southern, UCLA, and Virginia Union. Annually, the tournament will feature two HBCU programs. This reflects the 41 percent of Folds of Honor recipients that are minorities and the GCAA and Black Golf Coaches Association of America partnership to help grow opportunities for HBCU and black college golf.
